Ribeye Steak

Indulge in the succulent delight of a perfectly cooked ribeye steak, seasoned to perfection and bursting with flavor. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply craving a hearty meal, this recipe will guide you through the steps to achieve steakhouse-quality results right in your own kitchen.


  • 1 ribeye steak
  • Sea salt flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 50g butter
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 clove of crushed garlic with its skin



  1. Take the steak out of the refrigerator at least half an hour before cooking to allow it to reach room temperature. This step ensures even cooking.
  2.  Generously season the steak with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper on both sides, ensuring even coverage.
  3.  Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. If cooking multiple steaks, ensure the pan is large enough to accommodate them comfortably or use multiple pans.
  1. Add the seasoned steak to the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, depending on desired thickness and doneness. For a steak that is 3cm thick, aim for 5 minutes of total cooking time.
  2. For desired doneness, use a meat thermometer to check internal temperature: 50°C for rare, 60°C for medium, and 70°C for well-done.
  3. During cooking, add butter, thyme sprigs, and crushed garlic with its skin to the pan to enhance flavor. Baste the steak with melted butter for extra richness and aroma.
  4. Once cooked to perfection, remove the steak from the pan and allow it to rest for a few minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a tender and juicy steak.
  5. Serve the ribeye steak hot, accompanied by your favorite side dishes such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a crisp salad.


  • Choose a well-marbled ribeye steak for maximum flavor and tenderness.
  • For added richness, consider finishing the steak with a drizzle of high-quality extra virgin olive oil or a dollop of compound butter.
  • Experiment with different seasonings and herbs to customize the flavor of your ribeye steak according to your preferences.
